Graduation, coursework, dissertation...

May 8th, 2006 at 02:05 pm

Final week of uni and I'm sitting here trying to finish my report on developmental prosopagnosia. I don't know if anyone has ever heard of it, it's a really interesting subject. People suffering from this cannot recognise familiar people e.g. friends, family and even themselves. If they're looking in a mirror they will know that they are looking at themselves but if they walked past a shop window and seen their reflection, they wouldn't know. There's a debate about whether there are separate systems for object and facial recognition, I'm finding it really interesting, hope I can mention it in my exam. Just in case anyone is wondering, the opposite exists too: some people cannot recognise objects but can recognise faces.

I still have about 5000 words of my dissertation left to write... I met with my supervisor on Friday and she basically said that I have more analysis to do and explained a method. I tried and I couldn't figure it out so I emailed her. I checked my mail this morning and she had replied and said that I should get help with statistics. Well as it turns out since this is my last week I didn't know if the sessions were still running so I emailed an academic advisor to find out. I missed today's one, waiting on her reply, so I have to go on Wednesday afternoon instead. I used to think my topic was interesting, but now I just want it handed in. I collected the project covers today all I need to do is write it!!!

The registry services emailed me last week, saying that I was registered to graduate but it is only provisional. If I fail anything this month I will graduate in July instead. If that happens I'm still going to the graduation ball - I've bought my dress, booked the hotel and paid for the tickets, I'm not cancelling it.

    I got it completed, just handed it in today. I think if you google it you will find out more about it. I think I'll study it for my exam.
